FAQs - Past Life Sessions
Is this safe?
Completely. Hypnosis is a non-intrusive process where YOU are always in control. Gentle and safe, hypnosis was approved by the American Medical Association in 1958 as an effective healing modality. There are some myths surrounding hypnosis, including the idea that people in a hypnotic state may act against their will or reveal private information. These scenarios, often portrayed in books or movies, are fabrications meant merely for entertainment. In truth, the hypnotic state is more like a vivid daydream, in which you remain in control. Morals and ethics remain intact, as does your sense of privacy. Best of all, hypnosis is non-invasive and has no side effects. Most people are not aware that they actually undergo a hypnotic state every day. The trance-like feelings you experience while reading a book, watching a movie, or daydreaming are all semi-hypnotic states characterized by focused attention.
What specifically can a PLS do for me?
It can explain current difficulties and challenges, helping you to find appropriate solutions. It can reveal the cause of unexplained emotions, anxieties and fears that overwhelm you. It can help you to understand why you are experiencing difficult relationships and bring them to some resolution. A PLS can explain your attraction or dislike for certain people, objects or places. It can also help uncover gifts and abilities that you have had in the past so you can take advantage of them today. It can also help you overcome physical challenges if it is appropriate. If not, you will often gain a clearer understanding of them. A PLS can help you find relief from ailments like depression, addictions, anxieties and phobias. For nearly everyone, it offers a greater understanding of and insight into your life purpose and direction. Finally, a PLS allows you to experience yourself as a multi-dimensional being; an eternal soul with multiple expressions and incarnations.
Can you tell me more about the Higher Self?
It is the part of you that is connected to Universal Source. It is the portion of each individual’s consciousness that reaches beyond the conscious mind (the part of ourselves we are aware of and use to interact with others on a personal level). Religions and spiritual teachers have attempted to identify and label this larger part of ourselves throughout history using a variety of different labels, such as the Oversoul, Christ Consciousness, Higher Consciousness, the Universal Mind, and Oneness. The Higher Self does not care what we call it; it simply “IS” and is willing to work with those with a pure heart and intent.
Your Higher Self has the capacity to answer any and every question you have since it knows everything there is to know about you and the life you are living now. That said, your Higher Self also honors the autonomy of your current individual expression, and will only choose to share information that is appropriate and beneficial to you in the moment.
If it is appropriate, the Higher Self may also provide physical and emotional healing. It may do this instantly or initiate healing energies that will continue for days, weeks and even months after your session.
Will I lose control of what I say or do during a session?
No, your Higher Self will never act against your best interests or values. Although your deep and relaxed state may cloud your memory and conscious interaction at times, your Higher Self will never say or do anything that will leave you exposed or vulnerable. So, in this sense you are totally in control. If your conscious mind becomes concerned, you will not be able to go into a state of hypnosis, or you may interrupt the session and regain full consciousness. You will also have the opportunity during the initial conversation to get to know me, to address any concerns and to learn about the high level of integrity and respect that is foundational to this process.
Will it make a difference if I don't believe in past lives or reincarnation?
No. Beliefs are not necessary to the Higher Self. Past-life work has proven to be effective on thousands of people around the world, regardless of their age, gender, personality type, religious beliefs, physical symptoms, or cultural background. Whatever your belief system, your Higher Self is the source of all answers and will help you in ways that may surprise you. The innate drive of our minds, especially our deeper subconscious minds, is to help us reach balance, fulfillment, understanding and happiness.
Does this conflict with my religious beliefs?
No. As stated above, one does not have to believe in any doctrine to do a PLS. It is an experience, not a belief system or indoctrination.
That said, all of the five major world religions have some connection to past lives/reincarnation. It is central to the 1.3 billion people who practice Buddhism and Hinduism. It was widely believed and accepted in early Christianity (including by prominent Church Fathers), and recent surveys show that about a third of American Christians believe it (the Roman Catholic Church has never formally denounced it). It has been a key tenet of certain circles throughout the life of Judaism, including Hasidism in which it is still believed today. Reincarnation is also widely believed by Sufis, the mystical branch of Islam, as well as by other Muslims.
Of course, there are those in these last three religions that do not believe in reincarnation. 'Evidence' can be produced and argued by both sides, so it really is up to each person to decide what is true for them. Ultimately, my knowingness of reincarnation has been solidified not from theory or theology, but rather through the undeniable experiences I’ve had in my personal life and with my clients. But again, what matters in a PLS is the experience, not whether one believes in certain concepts.
How do a PLS work?
Our minds are busy non-stop all day - worrying, planning, making decisions, ruminating, remembering and creating. The thoughts we have running incessantly through our heads can be difficult to slow down, let alone control. When we are guided into a very deep level of relaxation, our hectic, conscious minds can be virtually stilled, allowing us to reach a wonderful state of peace. It is in this state that our deeper levels of consciousness, such as the Higher Self, can come forward and bring great wisdom and insight without the usual anxieties, fears and judgments of our hectic conscious minds. A PLS connects you to this deeper wisdom and allows you to access its all-knowing qualities & abilities.
How does healing take place?
The Higher Self has the ability to identify any physical problem it detects within the body and explain the causes for its presence, be it from the current or a past life. The Higher Self is then asked if it is suitable for healing to occur, which, if it is, can be done instantaneously with no medication, surgery or pain involved. Very often, simply understanding why a disease is present or why a particular emotion is being experienced is sufficient for it to be relieved and removed by the Higher Self. Countless experiences of miraculous healings have occurred during PLSs.
Healing can only occur if an individual wants to be healed and if it does not interfere with the goals of their lifetime. We have incarnated on Earth for our own individual reasons and experiences. So, for example, the Higher Self of a blind person may not heal his sight if being blind was a key aspect of his life he agreed to experience. Nor would it heal a physical problem someone created through the lack of care for their body if they had not yet learned the specific lesson of honoring their body.
Please note that I am not doing the healing. YOU are healing yourself in this guided experience. There are no limitations, except the limits of your own belief and imagination. Nothing is beyond the realm of possibility.
How many sessions would I need for a full treatment?
Because PLS is such a transformative, in-depth process, most people only need one session. Additional sessions are possible, and are often sought out by those wanting assistance in fortifying their own connection to their Higher Self. If this is something you are even potentially interested in, please let me know up front. I can prepare you to access a desired state of relaxation quickly, thereby shortening any follow-up sessions considerably.
Can I bring someone with me?
Even though you may feel the need for some support, deeply personal information could be forthcoming during the session that you may not want to share. This is a very private, personal and confidential process with relevance only to you, your circumstances and your life. Any sharing can be made by you once you listen to your recording and decide what you feel is safe and appropriate to share.
Are there any other restrictions?
Clients must be at least 18 years old, fluent in English, and completely sober, i.e. not under the influence of substances that alter states of awareness.
